    in reply to: Two Exchange 2007 servers not communicating #283387

    Re: Two Exchange 2007 servers not communicating

    I think I got it working. I deleted and recreated the “new servers” public folder DB. I adjusted the receive connector on the “old” server. Rebooted the new server. Now I can see/add the new server in the replication area of the public folder management area.

    Re: adding 2nd Exchange 2007 Server

    Thank you Simon,
    Adding the “new” server to the Source Server did it. I can now send from the new server.

    BTW I read your blogs about using Vamsoft ORF. I am considering using it in the dmz as the smtp relay.

    Enjoy the Olympics!

    Re: Migrate from Server 2003 (not sbs)

    I certainly thought about it…as I need to fit blackberry express in their network somehow.

    esxi would do wonders.
    I haven’t checked the HCL lately to see if the 2800 is on it. It’s probably doable.

    Where I lack experience is backing up esxi. Which could be troublesome if something comes up before I figure it out.

    Re: Migrate from Server 2003 (not sbs)

    I’ll take your advice.

    Blow away server

    Got new drives
    2 drive mirror for the OS
    4 drive raid 5 for data

    Dell 2800 dual xeon 2.something or another
    12GB ram.

    The office doesn’t use SQL. So only email/file storage. Five users.

    Re: Migrate from Server 2003 (not sbs)

    They’re Outlook 2003.-They’re a financial services firm, so they will not clean up much at all. I finally got them to delete their deleted items.

    As soon as I begin, I will begin the pst export from the clients, while backing up the file server.

    Would you create the new domain on a temp pc prior to installing SBS2008 in order to organize the local profiles?

    I know SBS wants a nice fresh network to install into but perhaps creating the new domain on a temp pc-I can do a migration to sbs…

    Any thoughts?

    Again, thank you for taking the time to answer.

    Re: Migrate from Server 2003 (not sbs)

    Firstly-Thank you for responding.

    All mailboxes are over 2GB- with one being 6gb and another 4GB. Does it make a difference if I export FROM the client as opposed to exmerge?

    I guess I could cut them up to get within 2GB..

    in reply to: INBOUND Port 25 just got blocked #283378

    Re: INBOUND Port 25 just got blocked

    Yes port 25 inbound is still blocked. Yes I have an email server, no I don’t have a biz. Just a geek playing around.

    Also just to note when my email server was up and working, It wasn’t a 24/7 thing. I’m just playing around seeing what I can learn.

    I must have broke it 25 times over the year. So it’s not a serious thing. More of a hobby.

    Anyway, Soapbox stance well taken.

    Thank you everyone for your input.

    Re: INBOUND Port 25 just got blocked

    Yeah I called they said they weren’t blocking it. They often confuse blocking outbound 25 with inbound 25…

    You see if you’re just using outlook to send email out through their servers they use port 587, so they can block port 25 without hurnting the regular users

    Anyway, thats the story.

    Re: INBOUND Port 25 just got blocked

    yes it can be.

    I’ll look into that.

    I know the vpn would be best.

    Thanks for all the input.

    Edge isn’t designed to be completely standalone. While it will operate on another network it is not designed to work in the way that you are looking at doing. It still needs to communicate with the main Exchange org, it just goes through a smaller set of ports than a full domain member.

    It sounds like you just need an SMTP gateway. I have instructions on how to setup one of those on my web site: http://www.amset.info/exchange/gateway.asp

    Simon.

    Yeah I know Edge is not a standalone. I basically just would like to place Edge, or like you mentioned an SMTP gateway outside my network, and have it relay inbound email to me. I still could send outgoing through comcasts smarthosts.

    So can I place the smtp server on another network and not need a constant vpn to/from it?

    Thank you

    Re: INBOUND Port 25 just got blocked

    I already do that. All my outbound email goes through their servers.

    I’m talking about incoming.

    Re: INBOUND Port 25 just got blocked

    They wont open it, and yes they want me to upgrade to a biz account.

    I won’t do that. I like the mail reflectors. They look like an okay way to bypass the port blockage.

    What I really want to do is to stick an exchange 2007 edge transport on a network that has a real internet connection.

    Since the edge doesnt get joined to the domain. I figure it could accept internet email on the usual port 25. Then connect via connector to my network on a different port and deliver it there.

    SMTP can listen on any port you want. Its just the standard is port 25, so opening port 26 wont get you internet email because all the servers delivering mail expect 25.

    Re: allowing port 443 (https) in through pix 501

    I have read that conduits are no longer used. Access lists are replacing them.

    I’ll be doing that tomorrow when I’m in the office. I’ll let you know the results.

    Marcel-I’ve chosen not to run the debug. Too risky. I’m going to tweak the acl’s.

    Thank you both for your input.

    Re: allowing port 443 (https) in through pix 501

    Marcel,

    I tried what you suggested, and the pix re-added the text https, as opposed to keeping the port number 443. I’ll be trying different things today. I’ll post back if i get it working.

    Thanks
